Of all the ways you can eat ice cream, perhaps one of the best is sandwiched between two soft cookies. The Penguin Brothers in Provo has some of the best cookie-ice cream combos in the state.
Since its inception, The Penguin Brothers has offered ice cream from Rockwell, so rest assured you’re getting the best ice cream available in the state. Earlier this year, the shop started making its own cookies in order to maximize freshness. They are now made fresh daily, so you’ll always get soft cookies around your ice cream. The store offers at least five cookie flavors daily, including a gluten-free option.
The classic is the Big Bro sandwich, though you also have your choice of the Lil’ Bro, about half the size. The shop also offers what it calls a Penguin Pie: a large scoop of cookie dough is baked into a pie tin and served warm with ice cream on top. The melty ice cream paired perfectly with the warm cookie is large enough to share…if you can keep yourself from eating it all, that is.
You can bring The Penguin Brothers to your wedding or any other type of private event. The Barkdull brothers hope to expand north with new locations at some point. For now, it is certainly worth a trip to Provo now to try out the ice cream treats!
